Insecurity: Disability, the Great Depression, and the New Deal State

As a transformative moment in the history of US welfare policy, the New Deal propelled momentous state growth. “Insecurity” analyzes how disability informed that era, by helping to define notions of insecurity and delineate divides between work and relief, while also serving as an object of state growth. This grant will support conference and research travel and provide a stipend for archival research.
